Infant dies in locked car while father goes to work


San Jose police are investigating the death of a 9-month-old boy who was locked in a vehicle while his father was working.

The father, who has not been identified, was supposed to drop off his son at a babysitter’s house before he went to work Wednesday morning but he forgot, San Jose police Sgt. Heather Randol said.

He parked his vehicle in the 3700 block of Payne Avenue with the infant strapped in the car seat, Randol said.

The father discovered the boy unconscious in the vehicle at the end of the workday, according to Randol.

Police received a call at 7:14 p.m. about the unconscious infant, who was pronounced deceased a short time later, Randol said.

No arrests were made pending further investigation, she said.
